Dear Requester
Please find attached spreadsheets with the additional information
requested on Children's Residential Provision which are reflected in the
Out of County figures.
No Special Education Services are paid for by Health and Social Care
payments.  They are paid by Education and recharges raised so we are
unable to provide actual payment dates.
